A coalition of gun rights and conservative groups has proclaimed Jan. 19, “Gun Appreciation Day” and begun urging Americans nationwide to show their support for gun ownership by turning out en masse at gun stores, ranges and shows from coast to coast. The event, which is being modeled after the “Chik-fil-A Appreciation Day” that took place last year, is taking place two days before President Barack Obama’s inauguration.

I found this was in really bad taste of the Patch to post this on a page with announcements about activities for families with kids. Many of us are still really upset about the events in Newtown and this just made it worse for me. My son is still scared to go to school. The social worker there has been really helpful and one thing he suggested was to stay away from the media. THis sort of thing is not helping us who are trying to heal. Because of the right to free speech, you are allowed to post the announcement buy have some sensitivity as to where you place the announcement.
